Twitter is getting more granular notification settings including a 'quality filter'

Twitter has announced a pair of new features that will be live in the official app and web interface soon.

You'll be able to control which notifications you see, and there's a filter that allegedly removes low-quality tweets. I have to wonder how well that works.
